Rebekah had a fit this morning because she says she doesn't have any winter dresses. Or rather, she didn't like her options. Mommy to the rescue! I made her two this afternoon! Here's #1, you'll have to wait until tomorrow for #2, and I have a plan for a third one too. I found 3 plain colored long sleeve shirts in her closet that someone had given to us. She is definitely not lacking in long sleeve T-shirts, so I figured she could spare a few. Then we headed to the basement craft area to find some matching fabric. This striped knit fabric came from the thrift store last year, but I never got around to using it. It looked the best with the purple shirt, and she loves it!
For the skirt, I cut two triangular pieces with curves on the top and bottom. I gathered a few inches of fabric in the front to dress it up a bit.
Here's a close up of the front. I was going to add ties on the side so she'd have a cute bow in the back, but she didn't want them. Below is the original shirt. I love up-cycling!
